Kula Botanical Gardens

The Kula Botanical Gardens was established in 1968 as a display for Warren McCord’s landscaping business. The garden has grown into a destination that draws thousands of tourists to it on a yearly basis. The Kula Botanical Gardens is family owned and operated and is located on the slopes of Haleakala.

Inside the garden, visitors will find 8 acres of unique plants, amazing rock formations, waterfalls, koi ponds, a covered bridge, aviary and new attractions such as the carved tiki exhibit. People who enjoy the park are encouraged to bring their cameras so they can photograph the hundreds of varieties of plants.

Visiting the Kula Botanical Gardens

Each of the plants in Kula Botanical Gardens is labelled with their botanical name, common name, and country of origin. This makes finding the plants you’re interested in much easier, as well as being able to learn more about the different plants on display in the garden.
